  1. But other than agent talk there has been nothing official about Lang from the club. Could be a load of rubbish. Getting Long on another year is good business though.
  2. Great bit of business if it happens. Gallagher and Lamie in the middle. Carrol and Grimshawa full backs. Looking like a good defence for the coming season. Also don’t forget Maguire.
  3. What’s the situation with the update on playing staff? We were told this would be announced last week and since then silence... I don’t expect too many going out. I think they key word here is consolidation. Keep the bulk of the current squad and maybe tie up Watt and O’Hara on longer term deals. Maybe guys like Mazinga, Ilic and Mugabi will go and find other clubs. Surprised of the talk that Hartley is away as I think him and Declan is a great partnership, but maybe he want a new challenge. With no real indication of when fans may be back in stadiums then it is key that the club hold onto as much of that prize money as possible just now. Cash is king. A real chance for some more youngsters to get first team games as I doubt we will be going out and signing loads this summer.
  4. I think it’s more serious than you think. The mortality rate in Italy is an eye opener. this is about prevention and even if you have a 1% mortality rate that could mean millions of deaths worldwide. swine flu in 2009 infected 61 million and killed 600,000.
  5. Think they will suspend rather than cancel just now. See how the virus spreads before making that decision.
  6. Get Turnbull on the pitch. No fucking about.
  7. Right back to winning ways. No doubt this has been playing on the whole clubs mind.
  8. Eh? He has had a couple of bad games. He has been outstanding for about a year and a half!
  9. 10 points ahead of Killie in 7th and 15 points left to play for before the split. We have to think there will noT be enough of a swing for us to drop into 7th, so it’s just a case of trying to hang in there and then maybe once in the split we can still be in the hunt. As another poster said all the other teams are inconsistent and will take points of each other. The hope is that Turnbull coming back might inject some life into the team. I’m worried about Robinson though as he has the feel of an manager running out of ideas and there is a hint of desperation about what he is doing at the moment.
  10. Because Accies are run by crooks. They didn’t “lose” one million quid, it’s in an off shore account in Bermuda.
  11. We all knew a bad run was going to come. We know these guys are good enough, just need to get back on track and make sure we secure top 6 and then worry about if we can make Europe. I still maintain that to be where we are in the league is great and is more than I ever expected at the start of the season. A bit too much panicking here, every team out with Celtic has had a bad run of games this season.
  12. Look on the bright side. We could be in Hearts position.
  13. Beaten by a much better side. Other results all went our way. 25 games gone and still 3rd. Just got to keep going. Rolando looks decent.
  14. Tony Watt can be our “Si Ferry” style media man. Sits on a stool for an hour with a Stone Island tracksuit on, no socks and a pair of expensive trainers where he can review the dressing room banter and tell us how much of a “character” Charles Dunne is. Then he interviews current squad players and they can talk about all the banter and who has the most banter in the dressing room. We can release the podcast as “Watt the fuck?”
  15. Oscar level fishing.
  16. That’s nonsense. From what I’ve heard is that his attitude since joining has been shite. That’s totally down to the player. Motherwell signed a Danish international and ended up with a homesick dud.
  17. He could be our podcast host, but I would keep him of the grass.
  18. I think the top four is sorted. I can’t see any of the teams below us putting on a run and I don’t see us losing game after game. This is now us on a season worth of games and we clearly out ahead of the chasing pack. It’s not a flash in the pan, we are up there on merit.
  19. Might need to stuff a phone up his arse so he can phone in tactics to Lasley.
  20. You like lady boys in Livi?
  21. O’Hara, Sloth and Maguire can all play in Donnely’s position. Out of those three I would say Maguire is the best backup option, O Hara I am not sure about and well Sloth - does he play football.
  22. Just putting this out there, but what if Robinson has done some scouting about and the players he wants don’t want to come to Motherwell and the ones who do are not good enough? Also this squad over the last year is the third best team in the land and that includes 6 months without our best player.
  23. Brain Easton had the game of his life. I agree we missed Donnely big time yesterday. Bad result, but can’t grumble too much as to be third half at the winter break is more than any of us would have hoped for at this stage. Anyway hopefully a fully fit squad against Dundee in a few weeks is what we need as these run of games over the holidays is hard to manage when you have a small squad.
  24. Murphy would be a brilliant signing. Still top class when fit and has a close relationship with the club. Perfect.
